Welcome to BIG BAR, LLC, Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin website. We handmake a popular ice cream product called the BIG BAR and vend them at various events mainly in Wisconsin. Yes, we use many of the same recipes as Kent's Ice Cream that began in Fort Atkinson in 1941.  We still use old fashioned recipes and very high quality ingredients.  Not much tastes like it used to 30 years ago - except a BIG BAR! 


The above photo was taken less than 2 weeks before the Spring Jefferson Swap Meet 2018.  If the old 'binder' could talk, it would be telling us this was the first time it has seen snow.  We bought the old International Harvester almost 15 years ago from Oklahoma where it spent its first 4 decades on Tinker Air Force Base.  When we brought the '61 IH home from storage just a couple days earlier, we certainly did not think it and the '53 step van in the background would be caught in a snow storm.  We all hope for much better weather for Spring Jefferson 2019.



Here is a group of regular big bar customers having a great time at the Jefferson Swap Meet!


Above is a photo taken of the September 2017 Jones Park cruise night where the bulk of the classics parked on the ball field.  They looked great under the lights!  Excellent weather was on hand that evening for a packed house!  More photos are on the cruise night page.


The above photo was taken of a great group of car guys and gals that stopped at the Big Bar factory on their way to the Dells show in May 2015.  Thanks to Mark & Jackie for putting it together for their group.  They all got a quick tour (sorry, we were not in production that day) and, of course, their favorite big bar!  We know this is an old photo, but it is a favorite of ours and we see many of these folks at a lot of shows.

Here's an enterprising young man, Vinny, hauling parts at a past Jefferson Swap Meet in September.  Note the date on the photo.   Sorry this photo has been here so long, but it is one of our personal favorites from all the years we have been doing this and, sad to report, Vinny passed within the last couple years.  Vinny's family and friends enjoys seeing this photo too.



The above picture was taken at the Iola Car Show & Swap meet almost 15 years ago - still a favorite of ours.  We enjoyed the Iola event again this year!  It was a hot weekend, but it seems the whole summer has been that way this year.
The Spring Jefferson Swap Meet had great crowds all weekend despite a very cold wind most of the event.  Thanks for all the die-hards who braved the cold temperatures and wind to get their first big bar of the season.  Below is a photo some friends sent as they were leaving Jefferson to enjoy a big bar on the way home.  Fall Jefferson felt as cold as a spring Jefferson this year.  Weather can be tricky to deal with, but thanks to all who braved the cold and wind to enjoy one of the last and best car events of the season.
